  • Phillies' Cristian Pache: Captures short-side platoon role

    Pache will start in center field and bat ninth in Sunday's game against the Pirates.

    Even though both he and Johan Rojas are right-handed hitters, Pache appears to have taken hold of the short side of a platoon in center field. Pache will be included in the lineup for the Phillies' third straight matchup with a lefty (Marco Gonzales) while Rojas sits.

  • Phillies' Johan Rojas: On bench against lefty

    Rojas is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Pirates.

    Even though he's a right-handed hitter, Rojas finds himself out of the lineup for the Phillies' third straight matchup with a left-handed starting pitcher (Marco Gonzales). Rojas has still been included in the starting nine for each of the Phillies' last three matchups versus right-handed pitching, so he still looks to have a grasp on primary duties in center field. Rojas has produced a meager .566 OPS since returning from Triple-A Lehigh Valley in late June, but the Phillies lack appealing alternatives and appear to value his defense and speed enough to continue to carve out regular playing time for him.

  • Phillies' Brandon Marsh: Hitting bench against lefty

    Marsh is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Pirates.

    Marsh and fellow left-handed-hitting regular Bryson Stott will take a seat for the series finale while the Pirates send southpaw Marco Gonzales to the hill. With Marsh on the bench, Weston Wilson will get the nod in left field.

  • Phillies' Bryson Stott: Sitting versus southpaw

    Stott is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Pirates.

    Lefty Marco Gonzales is pitching Sunday for Pittsburgh, so Stott will head to the bench for the second time in the series. Edmundo Sosa will start at the keystone and bat sixth for Philadelphia in the finale.

  • Phillies' J.T. Realmuto: Getting rest Sunday

    Realmuto is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Pirates.

    After going 1-for-3 with a walk while logging eight innings behind the plate in Saturday's 4-1 loss in his return from the 10-day injured list, Realmuto will get some maintenance in the series finale in Pittsburgh. Garrett Stubbs will receive the start at catcher Sunday, but Realmuto should see the overwhelming share of work now that he's recovered from right knee surgery, which kept him on the shelf for nearly a month and a half.

  • Phillies' Zack Wheeler: Making next start Tuesday

    Wheeler (back) is scheduled to start Tuesday's game against the Twins at Target Field.

    Just as manager Rob Thomson had suggested would be the case heading into the All-Star break, Wheeler won't have to miss another turn through the rotation and will get the ball for the Phillies' fifth game of the second half. Wheeler was unable to make a start last weekend against the Athletics while he contended with back spasms, but after getting extended rest over the All-Star break, he looks to be healthy again. The right-hander has met expectations for fantasy managers who invested an early-round pick, as he'll head into Tuesday's outing with a 10-4 record, 2.70 ERA, 0.99 WHIP and 126 strikeouts in 116.2 innings over 19 starts.

  • Phillies' Ranger Suarez: Cleared to start Monday

    Suarez (back) is listed as the Phillies' probable starter for Monday's game against the Twins at Target Field.

    Suarez opted to skip out on pitching in the All-Star Game this past week while he had contended with back tightness leading up to the end of the first half of the season, but as expected, he'll be ready to pitch in the Phillies' second series coming out of the break. Despite being lit up for 15 earned runs over 15.2 innings across his last three starts, Suarez still has maintained sterling ratios over his 19 outings on the season (2.76 ERA, 1.04 WHIP, 18.8 K-BB%). His fantasy managers can feel comfortable activating him in what shapes up as a two-start week for Suarez, who is lined up to get the ball again next weekend in Cleveland.

  • Phillies' Cristopher Sanchez: Gets little help in loss

    Sanchez (7-5) took the loss Saturday as the Phillies were downed 4-1 by the Pirates, giving up two runs on eight hits over 5.2 innings. He struck out two without walking a batter.

    The southpaw didn't pitch poorly, tossing 56 of 90 pitches for strikes as he fell just short of his 11th quality start of the season, but the Phillies' offense couldn't solve Luis Ortiz. Sanchez has allowed two runs or less in five of his last six starts, posting a 2.79 ERA, 0.96 WHIP and 28:5 K:BB in 38.2 innings over that stretch. He'll look for a better result in his next outing, which lines up to come at home next weekend against the Guardians.

  • Phillies' Michael Mercado: Dispatched to Triple-A

    The Phillies optioned Mercado to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Saturday, Alex Coffey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

    Mercado was lit up for six earned runs in four innings during his last appearance against Oakland on Sunday, and he'll now head back to Triple-A in order to right the ship. Yunior Marte was recalled from Lehigh Valley to fill the open spot in Philadelphia's bullpen.

  • Phillies' Rafael Marchan: Optioned to Triple-A

    The Phillies optioned Marchan to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Saturday, Alex Coffey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

    J.T. Realmuto (knee) was activated from the injured list Saturday, squeezing Marchan off the big-league roster. The 25-year-old backstop owns a solid .894 OPS through 56 plate appearances with the Phillies, though he'll remain in the minors as long as Realmuto and Garrett Stubbs are both active.

  • Phillies' Yunior Marte: Back in majors

    The Phillies recalled Marte from Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Saturday, Alex Coffey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

    Although Marte owns a 6.92 ERA and 2.23 WHIP in Triple-A, he's been much more effective in the majors with a 3.31 ERA and 1.35 WHIP through 16.1 frames. He'll now rejoin the Phillies to give their bullpen a fresh arm, taking the place of Michael Mercado.

  • Phillies' J.T. Realmuto: Activated from IL

    The Phillies reinstated Realmuto (knee) from the 10-day injured list Saturday, Alex Coffey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

    Realmuto has been on the injured list since June 11 after undergoing right meniscus surgery. Manager Rob Thomson said before the All-Star break that it was unlikely the 33-year-old backstop would return during the weekend series, but Realmuto's progressed through his recovery faster than expected and will be active for Saturday's game versus Pittsburgh. Rafael Marchan will head back to Triple-A Lehigh Valley in a corresponding move, and Realmuto will reclaim his spot as Philadelphia's everyday catcher after slashing .261/.309/.411 during the first half.

  • Phillies' Freddy Tarnok: Shut down with lat strain

    Triple-A Lehigh Valley placed Tarnok on its 7-day injured list July 9 with a right lat strain, Tom Housenick of The Allentown Morning Call reports.

    After claiming Tarnok off waivers from Oakland on June 1, Philadelphia optioned him to Lehigh Valley. Tarnok accrued a 4.82 ERA, 1.54 WHIP and 12:4 K:BB in 9.1 innings over five outings (four starts) with Lehigh Valley before being shut down with the injury, which will likely keep him out indefinitely.

  • Phillies' Griff McGarry: Returns from IL

    Triple-A Lehigh Valley reinstated McGarry (undisclosed) from the 7-day injured list Friday.

    McGarry had been on the shelf since May 24 with the unspecified injury, but he was cleared to rejoin Lehigh Valley coming out of the All-Star break after he struck out two over a scoreless inning in his lone rehab appearance July 13 with High-A Jersey Shore. Over his 14 relief appearances with Lehigh Valley on the season, McGarry has posted a 3.57 ERA and 25:15 K:BB across 17.2 innings.

  • Phillies' Rodolfo Castro: Rehabbing from shoulder injury

    Castro (shoulder) began a rehab assignment Thursday and has gone 1-for-6 with a run scored and an RBI between two games in the rookie-level Florida Complex League and Single-A Clearwater.

    After failing to win a spot on the Phillies' Opening Day roster, Castro was optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley coming out of spring training. He appeared in just two games for Lehigh Valley before being placed on the 7-day injured list April 3 with left shoulder subscapular bursitis, per Tom Housenick of The Allentown Morning Call. Lehigh Valley later transferred Castro to its 60-day injured list, but since he's already missed more than two months with the injury, he'll be eligible for activation once he completes his rehab assignment.

  • Phillies' TJayy Walton: Back in action at Single-A

    Walton (undisclosed) has gone 4-for-19 with two doubles in five games since being reinstated from Single-A Clearwater's temporary inactive list July 9.

    Walton was on the inactive list for just four days before making his return to the Clearwater lineup. The 19-year-old outfielder is slashing .238/.319/.393 with two home runs and four stolen bases over 94 plate appearances on the season for Clearwater.

  • Phillies' Wen Hui Pan: Comes off 60-day IL

    High-A Jersey Shore reinstated Pan (finger) from the 60-day injured list Friday.

    Pan is poised to make his 2024 debut with Jersey Shore after he was placed on the IL coming out of spring training due to a broken pinkie finger on his right hand. He should make his first start for Jersey Shore in the coming days after he completed four rehab starts between the rookie-level Florida Complex League and Single-A Clearwater. He covered 8.1 innings over those four starts, striking out 13 batters while allowing four earned runs on nine hits and two walks.
